Thanksgiving Fun!

We had a great Thanksgiving. We spent Thanksgiving Day at my grandmother's in Hamilton and then traveled to Lubbock for the weekend. Just a few pics from our travels. Keep scrolling down for even more videos from our travels.

More New Shoes to Try!





More Fun with Uncle Braxton


Great Fun with Shaun



I decided we should do our Christmas photo on campus at Tech while we were in Lubbock. Bryson however thought otherwise and only wanted to push the stroller around. When we tried to get a picture he threw a HUGE fit. I think the terrible twos have arrived. Here are a couple of the good picutures. Notice there isn't one of the whole family.

The Christmas Photo Outakes





Playing with the train Daddy had as a kid. Daddy's Uncle Ronnie made it for him!


Bryson is Rockin'

Bryson learned that he can rock a chair on his own. It takes his whole body movement but he can make that chair go. He wanted everyone to rock too! You can hear my mom in the background telling him to be careful. Too funny!


I LOVE the Wii!

While we were at my grandmother's over Thanksgiving, my cousin brought her Wii. It was definitely a source of extreme enjoyment for Bryson! He loved watching everyone bowl. He screamed and giggled with pure joy every time!

George, My New Best Friend

Last week while hanging out at Kohl's (one of my favorite stores) I ran across a Curious George stuffed animal. It was only five bucks and kept Bryson totally happy while I shopped, so he came home with us. I could never know how loved he would become. He now has been drug all over the house (and to the sitter on occasion) by Bryson. This morning Bryson had to have breakfast with him. George even got to eat some apples. Yum yum!

I Know I Have Been Bad!

Okay everyone! I am so sorry I have been such a blog slacker. So check out below for some Bryson updates. I promise to be better in the future. I do have a rather extensive list of excuses for my lack of blogging.

1. Brian has been holding the pictures hostage on his computer. He is always "messing with" his computer and now I don't have access to the pictures from my laptop as I once did.

2. You might ask, "Amber, why don't you just use Brian's computer?" Well because he is ALWAYS on it unless he is asleep and then I am asleep too.

3. You might also ask, "Why don't you just use the pictures off the camera card before he puts them on the computer?" Well because he is ALWAYS blogging and he seems to beat me to the pictures. Then he DELETES them off the camera card.

4. I know that it sounds like I am totally blaming Brian (of course much of it is his fault), so I will leave you with one final reason for my lack of blogging. Pure LAZINESS.

So to all of you faithful blog readers out there. I promise to be better with keeping up with the entries. Don't give up on me. Keep reading and commenting! Enjoy the updates below!

Trick or Treat

Our obligatory pumpkin pictures. Not as cute as last year. Bryson was way more into exploring the pumpkins instead of posing for the camera.


Halloween was great fun. Bryson had a whole entourage for the event. Nana, Gran, Grandad, Mommy, and his trick or treat teacher, Shaun, were all there for the fun!

Shaun as Iron Man!

Bryson as a lion! He wasn't into wearing the oh so cute head piece.

He actually walked to some of the houses. Isn't the tail cute!

Checking out the loot! Luckily he hasn't discovered that he can eat the candy. He only wants to play with it right now!

Today's fun! Walking around in Daddy's shoes, wearing my bling, and carrying my candy. He fell over more than one, picked up the goodies, and kept on going!

Catching Up!

Just posting some recent pictures since I have been so bad about blogging. See above post for excuses.



Bryson is swinging like a big guy now!


Even though he will always be a Red Raider, we showed off our Bearkat wear in honor of Cousin Brennan!



Riding the zebra at Gran's! Don't you love the shades!


The Alliance Air Show. Bryson loved the ma's. That would be plane in Bryson speak.

Teresa is the Best


Bryson has been going to a new sitter, Teresa, this school year. And he LOVES her. Doesn't faze him a bit to be dropped off each day. I always have to ask for kisses and hugs because he is already involved in something more fun than saying goodbye to mom. She is wonderful. She has been doing so much with him. They have been working on letters, shapes, colors, and many many new words. At last count he can identify 20 letters, 10-12 shapes (including pentagon and hexagon) and is working on colors and numbers. Thanks to her he has also become an avid lover of books or "boots" as he calls them. We love you Teresa!




This video was from awhile back but still fun to watch!

Playing on the Slide

Nana sent Shaun's old slide back to Dallas with us for Bryson to have. He has had more fun with it. He wants to go to the yard EVERY day after school to play!

Our Trip to LA (Lubbock Area)

We headed out to Lubbock this weekend for a visit with Nana. We enjoyed hanging out with Brian's mom and grandmother. We caught up on some much needed rest, ate some yummy food, and help out with some projects around the house. Nana took Bryson for his 18 month pictures (a bit early). We had them also take some pics with cousin Shaun. I will post those as soon as we get them. It was interesting trying to get my on the go boy to pose for a picture. Let's just say I did some pretty crazy stuff to get reactions. Check out Brian's blog for more particular details of all the projects he completed for Nana. Enjoy the pics from the weekend.
Nana was very excited to have Bryson try out the Jeep with Shaun driving. Bryson immediately started crying. He refused to go near the Jeep again. He did enjoy watching Shaun drive from a distance.

Nana totally spoiled Bryson. All he wanted was Nana all weekend. He would walk to her and say, "Up, peasss" anytime she was around.

Rocks are such great fun!

Brian noticed that Nana's mailbox could use a coat of paint. Of course she chose purple.

It was so nice to just hang out!

Peek a Boo!

Bryson's new favorite game while changing his diaper is peek a boo. He loves to sneak a peek at me behind his hands. He thinks it is hilarious if I catch him peeking.

Kindermusik

Bryson and I have been going to Kindermusik this summer. He has really enjoyed the songs, instruments, and other kiddos. Just a few pics from our fun!
Mommy and Me!

I love the egg shakers. I finally was able to carry all four at one time!

The bells are fun too!

Playing with the clappers!

Gran even joined in for the fun!



I loved the mirrors!
